Re: 2nd wave preps

Every single country in the world that had it now has it again. It isn't coming, it's here And for England, it isn't a second wave anyway because they never got out of the first.. I am just North of Leicester. Need anyone say more? “Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favour.” Just...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

I got a great deal on toilet paper (yes, I know - but you can never have enough IMHO :lol: ) from Amazon. 45 rolls of Andrex for £14.00. It's gone up slightly, probably due to the impact of recent decisions on regional lockdowns etc, but it's still a good deal.

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

Have an account and use the linked card for purchases and DD for regular bills. Keep a stash of cash to cover any banking issues (some people put a number on it, others just have a few months worth of 'running costs'). Have a second wad of cash for buying the more obvious survival-prepperist gear.....

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

Isn't this a fabulous learning curve though? Especially for younger people who have become used to the easy credit/ongoing ways of doing. Well, I think I'm definitely guilty of being in that category, although I have my Luddite moments :lol: Only started using contactless recently because of places...

Re: Laser engraver for canned goods?

I remember reading about the USA space programme, and the development of a pen that would write in zero gravity- it cost a couple of million dollars apparently. The Russians used a pencil! If I need to mark tins, I use an indelible marker. Just saying... Maybe you want to spring for a label-maker J...

New Potatoes

My new potatoes have zero flowers on them - how do I know if/when they will be ready to harvest. Also, some of the plants are pretty small. They were planted out back in March. Not had this issue before! A friend of mine has the same thing - new potato plants small and no flowers, main crop - like t...
